While I love hearty pasta dishes, like my creamy Italian sausage pasta or a comforting lasagna, I need something a little bit lighter in the spring. My favorite spring pasta recipes are actually more veggies and less noodles. I want all the fresh vegetables possible now that they are in season again! There is no better way to add flavor to a pasta dish than with flavorful veggies!

But not all spring pasta dishes need to be veggie-packed. Pasta with a lighter balsamic dressing or a lemony sauce is fantastic, too! I also think that spring dinner should be quick and easy so you can get outside and enjoy the warm weather (finally!). These simple pasta recipes will help you create the perfect spring meal in minutes.

Make every one of these pasta dishes for spring, and you will enjoy cooking and eating all season long!
